On that note, I seem to notice a change in the way new "films" are being presented. For quite some time now, the way movies are being made, it seems they are not shot with cameras that actually have FILM in them. they are shot with hi-def digital cameras which aren't really anything more than fancy camcorders. The images aren't committed to film until all the post production work is done. All the editing and dubbing is done on computers, so there is really no physical matter to land on the "cutting room floor". AND (check this out...) I went to see "Iron Man 2" today and as I watched this "film" I noticed on a couple of places on the screen that there was a line of static that flashed from time to time. Static? On a movie screen? I don't think they were using a film projector to show this movie. I think it was some sort of VIDEO projector. Those aren't that new, as I remember going to a club in Freemantle (Australia) that played music videos instead of records to dance to, the images were projected on a large screen by the dance floor, and that was back in '82.

Sad but true. While shootingthe "film", "Queens of Country", I was curious of the making of it. I noticed the monitor hookup for the scene that was going to be "shot". The image was taped but made to look like film.
On the set itself, the "cameras" were expensive data memory card machines. I asked why instead of film amd the technician smiled, saying"we haven't used a film camera for nearly 20 years. The editing of a "film" is done on a computer not a old editing splicer".

Alas, "filmmaking" isn't really *filmmaking* anymore, is it?

I'd shoot a film on FILM again...if I could afford to. But I can't ("I must, but I cannot!") so I shoot digital now.
